FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Latest Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Video Explores Modern World and Castle

Posted on Tuesday, January 28 @ 15:00:00 Eastern by


Konami and MercurySteam have released a brand new video detailing Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, this time with focus on the game's expansive and open environment.

Producer Dave Cox and studio head Enric Alvarez talk about the game's modern setting and the changes they've made to the world around the player. "This time we have a seamless world, a world without any loading time," says Alvarez.

"You explore the modern city and you explore Dracula's castle, which is part of the city," Cox explains. "So the city has grown around the castle."

During our hands-on time with Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, the free-moving camera made for some impressive views of Gabriel's surroundings. There are some impressive drops, towering castle constructs, and plenty of Castlevania mood and atmosphere.

Watch the whole video for looks at unique new bosses. My favorite part is the comparison shot where Gabriel is hopping on top of chandeliers, mimicking classic Castlevania gameplay. We're dying to play more of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, launching on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC, February 27th, 2014.
